Primestream Tapped by the Organization of American States for Automated Transcription and Video Cataloguing

Primestream® the leader in Media Asset Management and workflow automation, today announced that the Organization of American States (OAS) has selected Primestream’s Xchange® platform — hosted in the cloud and integrated with Artificial Intelligence (AI) — to catalog their media assets. The AI integration will recognize            every representative speaker   within any video generated from any session of the OAS. Concurrently, the audio content will be transcribed from multiple languages so it can be quickly delivered to the 35 OAS member countries, which includes every country in the Americas. This is a significant improvement over the previous manual process, which could take up to 30 days to accomplish the same tasks.

“Primestream understood the challenges that the OAS/OEA faced and thanks to a collaborative effort, we now have a cloud-based intelligent service that will empower the Ambassadors and the different departments of the OAS with powerful new tools to significantly improve the documentation and video cataloging workflows with new operational efficiencies,” said Alan Dabul, Primestream Director of Product Development.

“By accelerating the cataloging and transcription delivery, the OAS/OEA will be able to serve its members in a way that would not be possible without the adoption of Artificial Intelligence, combined with Primestream’s Dynamic Media Asset Management,” said Claudio Lisman, President and CEO of Primestream. “In addition to the automated transcription services, Primestream Xchange in the cloud will make the media content searchable using metadata as well as facial and text recognition.”

By adopting Primestream’s technology, the OAS will leverage its Xchange platform in a cloud-based architecture and will be able to easily extend access to its video content and related documentation to its offices across the Americas.

ABOUT THE ORGANIZACIÓN DE LOS ESTADOS AMERICANOS / THE ORGANIZATION OF AMERICAN STATES

The Organization of American States is the world’s oldest regional organization, dating back to the First International Conference of American States, held in Washington, D.C., from October 1889 to April 1890.  The OAS came into being in 1948 with the signing in Bogotá, Colombia, of the Charter of the OAS, which entered into force in December 1951.

The Organization was established in order to achieve among its member states—as stipulated in Article 1 of the Charter—”an order of peace and justice, to promote their solidarity, to strengthen their collaboration, and to defend their sovereignty, their territorial integrity, and their independence.”
